Peugeot, after a long time, made to the news with a special edition. This time it’s the Red Carbon Special Edition of RCZ launched in UK, based on the Sport top trim level of the model plate. Rivaling the Audi TT in adored French jaws, the small car of Peugeot rolled out in two color options: Moroccan Red and Nera Black. The best pick from both the shade is Red, if we are asked to buy.
On the comparison note, special edition and the conventional RCZ doesn’t looks wildly different than each other. Changes made are concluded on the bill of ‘Black Pack’ that includes matt black roof arches, brilliant black front grill, door mirror covers and brake calipers.
On interiors, Peugeot chooses ‘Red Carbon’ seats that are actually black in color, and had stitches running across in red. Dashboard, the shifter and the gear lever along with the door panels gets that same treatment.
Peugeot’s standard ‘Vision Pack’ encompassing Xenon, directional and self-levelling headlamps, 19-inch alloy wheels too are founded on it alongside a Connect Navigation (RT6) system, Audio, CD and satellite navigation system.
Just don’t be lazy who wishes to buy this French beauty, because the carmaker had promised to build only 300 units of these. Prices start at £26,000 for the 1.6 THP of 156 hp variant. The petrolheads wanted to have more from the bay of a French car, they can opt for a powerful version of 200 hp that costs £28,400. The conservative guys, we meant the diesel buyers, an option too is given for them. The 2-liter GDi diesel of 163 hp costs £27,850. In return, Peugeot had planted the RCZ with some better fit and finishes this time, but it hadn’t trailed off the slowest 0 to 62 mph time of 8.7 seconds.
